An exciting new job opportunity has arisen for a producer – production development role from storytelling and theatre production group Babbling Vagabonds.
This is a new collaboration between Claire Crook and Babbling Vagabonds, co-commissioned by Barnsley Civic and Greentop Community Circus.
The production concept is of a crashed flying machine occupied by a granny. As she sorts through the wreckage her memories are uncovered. Her lifetime of adventures unfolds; and we discover how she was shaped into the resourceful, thoughtful, resilient elderly lady we see before us.
Through funding from Arts Council England, Babbling Vagabonds have undertaken a period of Research and Development, collaborating with three Circus professionals and developing a shared understanding of the process that they all undertake to create work.
The team at Babbling Vagabonds want to develop the new piece of circus theatre over a 2 year period:
Year 1: The creation of the set and show; a limited tour to 4 outdoor spaces – Barnsley, Sheffield, Derby and BV’s hometown of Buxton.
Year 2: Longer Tour – to existing festivals and street events and stand alone events.
Their longer-term plan is to deliver a larger tour across the Midlands and Yorkshire and beyond after 2023.
Fee: £2500 total (including VAT and all expenses).
Expected time: 10-15 days.
Start date: Autumn 2021.
